陈嘉鸿教士是裕廊东基督复临安息日会的堂主任。他于2012年从台湾三育基督学院以神学文学士毕业。他是非基督教家庭长大的新加坡人。在2005年,通过去沙捞越的宣教活动来到了教会,因而信主。
陈教士相信训练与装备基督的门徒来实现耶稣给予的大使命,与他人分享救赎的好消息。他相信上帝关心并爱护每一个人,也想要分享这个真理。
他曾嘲讽基督徒,但现在却说,“我曾经因基督徒的信仰嘲讽他们。对我而言,宗教是弱者的拐杖。然而,我现在的观点改变了。我仍然視信仰为弱者的拐杖,但是改变的是我成长之后发现其实人人都是软弱的,我们需要有更大的力量帮助我们。”
在圣经中,透过以赛亚,上帝说,“你们来,我们彼此辩论。”信仰是有逻辑并有理的。圣经在诗篇34:8给予一个呼召,“你们要尝尝主恩的滋味,便知道他是美善。”陈教士也将这个邀请带给各位,尝试认识创造主,改变你的生命。
Pastor Tan Jia Hong is the pastor of Jurong Seventh-Day Adventist Chinese Church. He graduated from Taiwan Adventist College in 2012 with Bachelor of Arts in Theology. He is a Singaporean coming from a non-Christian family, and came to church in 2005 through participating in a missionary trip to Sarawak.
Pastor Tan believes in the value of training and equipping followers of Christ to fulfill the gospel commission, to share the good news of salvation. He believes that God cares and loves everyone personally, and wishes to share this truth.
He used to be a mocker of Christians, but now says, “I used to laugh at Christians for their religion. To me, religion was just a crutch for the weak. However, now, my view have changed. I still view religion as something for the weak, but as I grow up, I see the weaknesses of humans and have to admit that I am weak and need someone stronger to help me.”
In the Bible, through Isaiah, God says, “Come now, and let us reason together”. Faith is reasonable. The Bible gives us a call in Psalms 34:8, “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good”. Pastor Tan would like to offer this invitation to all, to try this life-changing relationship with our Creator.
